A woman who broke her thigh when a chair collapsed under her at work has launched a High Court claim for more than �300,000 today (Wednesday).
Margaret Fay, of Dagmar Avenue, Wembley, fracturing her left thigh during the incident at the Wembley Plaza Hotel in Empire Way in June 2009.
The 73-year-old was rushed to Central Middlesex Hospital in Park Royal, where she needed a total hip replacement.
In the writ issued by Ms Fay she is claiming damages from Watford based Hilton UK Hotels.

According to the writ, in August 2009 insurers for the hotel group have admitted liability for her injuries but the two sides are thought unable to agree how much compensation she should receive.
The writ says that Ms Fay is at risk of needing a revision hip replacement operation in future, and her mobility and range of movement is curtailed by her injury.
